A new musical comedy that mixes in a dash of Agatha Christie!
What is the Story of Murder For Two?
In a wacky and humorous mash-up of classic murder mysteries and old-school musical theater, Murder For Two tells the story of Officer Marcus Moscowicz, an aspiring detective who attempts to solve the murder of a prolific novelist in hopes that he’ll be promoted at work. While investigating the crime, Marcus meets 13 zany suspects, all played by one actor. From the bespectacled wife of the victim to the victim’s gruff, cigar-smoking therapist, Marcus must get to know the suspects and make sense of their wild stories in order to solve the crime.
